      I apply it with a foundation brush .it does not give medium coverage as it is stated .it is a very light coverage where you can still see every little imperfections.good for daily usage because it is very light weight and has spf .it gives a dewy glowy look. if you are looking for picture perfect make up this is not what you need .

                        I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                          This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                          Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                          We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

                        I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?
